    Dump Cube3 firmware?

    Hello, How can I dl the firmware currently on my cube 3D? I am currently using 1.10A, and I have a collection of upgraded firmwares, but that is not one of them, so I am hesitant to flash a new one. Alternatively, does someone have a collection of firmwares to share? Thanks!

    Hmmmm... I havent dig into it up to the level to learn if the fw is dumpable... My assumption is that if they spent so much money designing a closed system, dumping them wont be easy.

    Are you collecting them for anything specific? Im afraid there's no "PERFECT" firmware from 3DSystems, so the best path will be, in the long run, to openbuild it...

    I just want to have a backup before I overwrite it, that way I can go back if I dont like the changes.

    Wow... worst registration for a forum ever!

    I would recommend removing the SSD card and cloning it. Even better, Clone it, upgrade +1, clone, rinse and repeat.
    I've collected what could be collected from the amazon link (you have to take apart the page to get direct links).
    We talked about an easily accessible repository.

    Also know that the latest software requires the latest firmware. You probably have to downgrade the program also.

    The openbuilds forum has good information on how to open the machine. To get to the SSD, you just have to remove the front cover.

    Somewhere on the SSD is the printer's serial number. Not sure which file, but we did a process of addition to learn where the printer would start a firmware reload.
    We moved everything to a sub-folder and brought forth only the firmware (which is renamed, BTW) then started adding the support files one by one. I think all it wanted was a config file, but I took my eyes away from the action and things suddenly worked again as it should. Just a heads up on what makes this thing tick.

    ah, i may try to access the sd if/when i take it apart.

    i cloned all the cubify software i could find from that page, but i was unable to reliably find which firmware was for the cube 3. did i miss something?

    btw, my 1.10a firmware runs with cubify 3.1 just fine. i spent some time trying to compare the release history of the software and the firmware and get in a window to optimize the chance of compatibility. this works fine fr me so far.

    The current version is 4.03, so yes, 3.1 will work on older firmware.

    3D Systems has what you're looking for...
    http://3dsystems.com/shop/support/cube/downloads

    Its been a while since I found the firmware releases.
    It is by no means complete.

    I have 1.11A&F, 1.12, 1,13A, 1.14 and 1.14B(current)
    Not every version was released. My last machine had 1.10a. Never ran it.

    yah, i got the release notes from there when i decided to land on 3.1. i wanted something reasonably updated, but i had already heard people say that 4.03 didnt work with older firmwares. i couldnt find any of the 2.xx line of the cubify software either, so i am missing that as well.

    any chance you could throw the firmwares up on mega or something?

    Parse the links out of this and add it to this root: http://cubify.s3.amazonaws.com/

    Haven't seen V3.1 of Cubify anywhere.
